A high court judge in India has ordered himself to undergo an education session with a psychologist on same-sex relationships before ruling on a case relating to a lesbian couple. The young couple, aged 20 and 22, fled to Chennai from their homes in Madurai to be together after their parents forbid their relationship, seeking refuge with an LGBT+ activist in the eastern Indian city at the beginning of March. After they escaped, their families filed kidnapping charges against Shiva Kumar, who runs the LGBT+ rights charity Nirangal, and with whom the couple had sought shelter.
